Kentucky Fried Chicken has partnered up with Huawei in China to celebrate its 30th anniversary of operations in the country to launch a limited edition smartphone.
Launched in tribute to KFC’s thirty-year milestone in China, the commemorative version of the bright red KFC Huawei 7 Plus smartphone came complete with a logo of Colonel Sanders and plenty of pre-installed freebies.
The limited edition model included KFC’s mobile app and 100,000 “K dollars” (virtual credits on the KFC app in China). The phone also provided access to K-music — KFC’s new jukebox function available on the KFC app, trade magazine Campaign Asia said.
As you’d expect, you’ll also be able to browse KFC menus on the go and according to the Chrome translation of this Weibo post, the Huawei Chang comes with 10,000 credits for you to spend in store.
We’re not sure exactly how many wings 10,000 gold translates to, but we assume that’s a fairly generous helping. Perhaps best of all though is a feature that, according to Telecoms, lets you, a la Uber, change the music that’s playing over the speakers in any KFC in China.
A total of 5,000 units of the limited edition phone will be released, KFC said on Weibo. The phones cost 1,099 yuan ($161.91) per unit and will be available for sale on the fast food company’s Tmall store from July 13.
The KFC handset comes with a 5-inch display with 1280 x 720 resolution, a Snapdragon 425 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 3,020 mAh battery. There’s also a 13-megapixel camera on the back, as well as a fingerprint scanner located below it.
